Event Volunteers
Event volunteers support our program events. From digging in the dirt, posting flyers, welcoming attendees, serving up delicious food, and everything in between, we can always use help. Tasks will vary depending on the type of event. As an added bonus, you get to be a part of a great event!

 

Professional/Administrative Support
Sustainable Solano is mainly volunteer-run and is always in need of general administrative support.

Projects would include:

  • flyer design and distribution across Solano county cities
  • social media posting (Facebook and Instagram)
  • IT support
  • preparing promotional material
  • assisting with workshop registration
  • internet research
  • outreach event assistance (prep and presence)

If you are passionate for sustainability, care to help form a more resilient community and are looking to dedicate some time and energy to make Solano county more sustainable, this is a perfect opportunity for you!

 

Communications Committee
The Communications Committee functions as a general discussion space for supporting and developing communication efforts about Sustainable Solano programs, workshops and events across all seven Solano county cities. Outlets include the general public, media, digital listing venues and monthly newsletter. If you are looking to be more creative and have writing, blogging, photography or graphic design experience, we are looking to expand our volunteer Communications Committee/ Outreach Team and would love to hear from you.

  • Help develop monthly newsletter themes and blog content.
  • Provide feedback and assist in the design of program and event promotional material (i.e. flyers, brochures).
